Federal Management Regulation (FMR); Mail Management; 
Requirements for Agencies

AGENCY: Office of Asset and Transportation Management (MA), Office of 
Government-wide Policy (OGP), General Services Administration (GSA).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: GSA is amending the Federal Management Regulations (FMR) 
reporting requirements to state that large agencies must submit to GSA 
their prior fiscal year mail reports in the Simplified Mail 
Accountability Reporting Tool annually by December 1.

DATES: Effective: September 22, 2015.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cynthia Patterson, Office of 
Government-wide Policy, at 703-589-2641 or by email at 
[email protected] for clarification of content. For information 
pertaining to status or publication schedules, contact the Regulatory 
Secretariat at 202-501-4755. Please cite FMR Case 2015-102-1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The revision involves the change of 
reporting date for the annual report in 41 CFR part 102-192, subpart B, 
Reporting Requirements. This final rule amends the annual mail 
management reporting date, in response to several agency requests and 
feedback in an Office of Government-wide Policy survey. The new report 
due date allows agencies to have additional time to reconcile data and 
increase accuracy. The new date of December 1 is about a month later 
than the current due date of October 31. Annual reports will encompass 
information from the previous fiscal year of October 1 through 
September 30. Submission details will be provided in a bulletin posted 
at www.gsa.gov/fmrbulletin.

A. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563

    Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess 
all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 
13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, 
of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. 
This is not a significant regulatory action, and therefore, will not be 
subject to review under Section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning 
and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This final rule is not a major 
rule under 5 U.S.C. 804.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    These revisions are not substantive; therefore, this final rule 
would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities within the meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 
U.S.C. 601, et seq. The final rule is also exempt from the 
Administrative Procedure Act per 5 U.S.C. 553(a)(2), because it applies 
to agency management or personnel.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because the final 
changes to the FMR do not impose recordkeeping or information 
collection requirements, or the collection of information from 
offerors, contractors, or members of the public that require the 
approval of the Office of Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, 
et seq.

D. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act

    This final rule is also exempt from Congressional review prescribed 
under 5 U.S.C. 801 since it relates to agency management or personnel.
